Tara Murphy, a young artist from New York City, is a Studio Art/ Psych major at Queens College. She is heavily influenced by Japanese anime and culture thanks to her brother. Tara teaches afterschool in Woodside, Queens and her students turn to her to face their issues head-on. As an educator, she suggests her students to turn their feelings into art. As an artist, she specializes in painting but has branched into abstract ceramic work. Many of Tara’s paintings are mixed media and paint; her paintings transform conventional objects into allegorical scenarios. Art is Tara’s escape from the ordinary: emotions are unloaded onto a canvas in a burst of passion.
The mind is within a prison and can be set free from its cage. People wage wars with the whispers that haunt their mind daily. From eating disorders, depression, anxiety, and personality disorders, Tara Murphy paints a portrait of the mind in many ways to illuminate the darkness people are burdened by. Conquer your battles and seek freedom from your overwhelming albatross by perusing Tara’s views on our struggles. One day, the person inside of us all can be victorious over those issues.
